At least 100 million PCs are still running Windows 7 a year after its technical support ended


#Microsoft has ended technical support for #Windows 7 for a year now. #Clearly, this operating system does not and will not benefit from any update. #And yet, there are still more than 100 million users of this now obsolete version of #Windows.

#This figure was obtained by ZDNet which, last year, had already looked into this question, at the same time that the technical support of #Windows 7 ended. #At that time, after consulting analytical data, the site was able to calculate an estimate of some 200 million machines still running this version of the OS.

#By performing the calculations again at the end of the year, and using the same tools as last year, it appears that some 100 million computers have been scrapped or have eventually upgraded to #Windows. 10.
#But this would also mean that there would remain around 100 million potentially vulnerable machines that would still run #Windows 7, or even more since this system still represents 8.5% of the installed base of #Windows, while this OS will no longer receive any updates. , not even to patch any security holes.

These colossal figures are however lower than those provided by some research companies, such as #StatCounter. #It attributed no less than 17.68% market share to #Windows 7 last month.

#Microsoft, however, did not skimp on efforts to encourage its users under #Windows 7 to migrate their machine to #Windows 10. #For several months, the #Redmond giant had implemented a utility to launch this migration to #Windows 10 for free. #While this deal is supposed to be officially over, upgrading #Windows 7 to #Windows 10 for free still seems possible.

#It now remains for #Microsoft to make an official communication to these last recalcitrant to encourage them to permanently abandon #Windows 7 in favor of #Windows 10.
